Bernadette Mannone has joined the USM Foundation in the position of Gift Administrator. Bernadette previously worked as a vendor administrator in the legal department of U.S. Foodservice at its Columbia, Md., headquarters. This office was recently relocated to Phoenix, Arizona. She joined the Foundation after training the new team in Arizona for her former employer. Prior to her position with US Foodservice, she worked for Signet Bank (now Wachovia) for over ten years. Bernadette has been married to her husband, Michael R. Mannone, for 35 years. She lives in Catonsville and has 4 daughters and 1 son, as well as five grandchildren. Their son graduated this year from UMBC.
Paula Kircher has retired from her position as Accounts Payable Associate at the USM Foundation. We are grateful to Paula for the more than 16 years of loyal service she provided to the Foundation. Paula always had a kind word and a smile when we would chat. In particular, I enjoyed hearing her talk about her family, including her son the photographer and her grandson, who was a manager with the Maryland Terrapins men's basketball team. We thank Paula and wish her only the best as she begins her life anew in retirement.
Michael Barry, Foundation Chief Investment Officer, and his wife, Katie, are the proud parents of a new baby daughter. Their first child, Keating Grace Barry was born on April 28, 2010. She was 5lbs, 11oz.
